Ten-year-old Jared Marshall's life crumbled down after his parents' divorce a year ago. Not only does his dad put his job first since, mother uproots him from Iowa by moving in with her ma so she can take a job in California. When Jared's class writes letters to U.S. troops in Bosnia from the nearest base, kindhearted Sergeant First Class Vince Carerra, who grew up fatherless and got divorced because his wife wasn't faithful while he was on tour of duty, takes to the kid and starts a correspondence with 'fatherly' advice. Once his unit returns to Fort Sebastian, Vince calls on Jared's home, warmly welcomed. Vince becomes Jared's personal baseball coach and after some Cupid encouragement, his mother's boyfriend, but on an understanding not to commit because he's likely to be redeployed. —KGF Vissers
I loved this movie. I was supposed to go to a dance tonight and got caught up in this movie and never left the house! I hope there is a sequel. The story line was great and the acting was so natural. It's coming on tomorrow and I will be right here to watch it! It was great to see Stephanie Powers acting again. The movie was just so down to earth and wholesome. It was great to see a story that had no cursing, no violence, no sex, no police, no crime - just a genuine story of love, caring and affection between people. I certainly hope the writer is working on the second part of this movie because there certainly should be a follow-up to the story. It also helped me to appreciate the sacrifices of our military families.
